Your Morning Is Saved – The Irish Rail Strike Has Been Called Off At The Last Minute

Commuters rejoice – the Irish Rail strike has been called off!

In a very dramatic last-minute agreement, it was agreed in the early hours of this morning that the action would be called off – despite confirmation to the travelling public last night that it would go ahead – and the matter will now be referred to the Labour Court.

However, given that most of the thousands of affected commuters have made their alternative arrangements, delays are still expected this morning.

Speaking from Cork on Newstalk this morning, Southern Correspondent Jonathan Healy described Kent Station as a "ghost town" – and said that the 7am Cork-Dublin train has "about 10 people on it" despite normally being one of the busiest services of the week.

So a welcome development – but it might still be a little bit hairy on the roads out there today.
